It is time to learn more about this unique and highly sought-after
waterfront golf community . Since the launch of this resort in June
2004, more than 450 homes and home sites have been released and
purchased through Priority Selection Events. With over 28 floor plans
to choose from, Bayside offers single family homes, town homes and condominiums to suit any lifestyle.

Reasons to Own:

Removed but not remote.
The spectacular setting of the bay creates a natural cul-de-sac, insulating you from the hectic pace of the outside world. Yet Bayside is still within driving distance to many major metropolitan areas such as New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Baltimore and Wilmington.

Nicklaus by the bay.
Bayside's Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course offers unprecedented championship play. The natural beauty of Bayside’s wetlands and forest is rivaled only by the golf course it surrounds.

Nature comes first.
The unspoiled beauty of Assawoman Bay is perhaps Bayside’s most precious resource. A natural resource, if you will, which is embraced in the community’s layout and design by preserving more than half of the property as open space.

A real place. A real sense of community.
At the heart of Bayside will be Bayside Village, a town center where residents will find shops, restaurants, a movie theater, spa and other recreational amenities that encourage a true sense of community. Bayside has the vibrancy of a community defined by an appreciation for the beauty of nature.

Many choices. All of them choice.
Life here is simple and easy. Deciding what to do each day is the tricky part. More than just golf, Bayside offers a lengthy list of water sports and activities as well as natural pursuits and a Nature Center for delving deeper into the unspoiled beauty of Bayside.

30 years of experience built into the property.
The Carl M. Freeman Companies experience and commitment to the conscientious development of the Delaware and Delmarva coastline ensures Bayside’s pristine setting will remain that way.



The beauty of Bayside is really a matter of choice:
people choose to live here for the abundance of nature,
the diversity of lifestyles and the variety of amenities.
And because it's a personal choice, the community is
defined by shared values. It's the kind of place that feels
like home the moment you and your family arrive.

Golf description

The Bayside Lifestyle

Life here springs from the bay. Along a sandy beach, the effortless
rhythms of the bay are hard to resist. And without even realizing
it, you and your family slip into a simpler, less complicated way of
life—coastal life. Where the only distractions come from the endless
array of activities. Where the protective surrounding waters shield
you from the bustle of crowded public resorts. And nature’s splendor
liberates your soul, enticing you to live better.


There is something to be said for quality time with those we love. That feeling of being together. Doing together. Bayside offers many choices for both. Imagine days where the swimming, canoeing, tennis, crabbing, kayaking, sailing, fishing and windsurfing all seem to vie for your attention. As do the nearby beaches of Fenwick Island and Ocean City. As the day fades, the evenings bring new life. Fireworks on the beach, concerts in the town center, cookouts with friends or simply relaxing on the front porch watching the stars blanket the charcoal sky.
